Since today is the last day of the summer of 2016, I thought I'd throw out a few summer tunes and ask you to share a favorite summer memory. It doesn't have to be from this summer, it could be any moment, no matter how small, from any summer.
For instance, when I was a very young teenager, my mom used to take my siblings and me to Wells Beach and I would bring one of my friends and my mom would drop my friend and me off in the area where the ski ball and pin ball machines were and we'd hang out all day and look at boys. We'd be dressed in our jeans, our jean jackets...and bare feet.To this day whenever I catch the scent of french fries at the beach, it takes be back to that time in Wells Maine.
What about you? Do you have any special summer memories? Maybe one of these tunes will jar your memory.
The ultimate summer song:
Lyrics: I, I love the colorful clothes she wears And the way the sunlight plays upon her hair I hear the sound of a gentle word On the wind that lifts her perfume through the air Im pickin up good vibrations Shes giving me excitations Im pickin up good vibrations
This song always makes me think of the dead of July.
"Ride Captain Ride" is a song recorded by the American rock band Blues Image. The song was co-written by the band's singer-guitarist Mike Pinera and keyboardist Frank "Skip" Konte. It was included on the group's 1970 album, Open. Released as a slightly shortened single in the spring of 1970, it shot up the charts, eventually reaching No.
OH! And this one too!
ERic Burdon & War Spill The Wine! I had this Version on before but had to much Pops and Hisses. The background noise has been removed. I purchaed a record cleaner and she sounds Sweet!
Oh god, remember this?
George McCrae - Rock Your Baby
And THIS one ALWAYS make me think of warm, sultry summer nights.
From 1976, reached #3 on the charts.
